Install Firmware:

- Download the firmware and, if it is a zip file, extract it
- Ensure the resulting file is named HDR_FOX_T2_Upgrade.hdf
- Place the file in the root of a FAT32 formatted USB Flash / disk Drive *
- Put the unit into standby using the remote or the central 'big button' on the Unit
- Make sure that the unit has completely shut down by listening for the hard drive to power down (accompanied by a click)
- Remove all USB devices
- Plug the USB Flash Device containing the HDF file into a USB port
- Turn on the TV and switch to the Humax input
- Start up the Humax using the big button on the front of the unit (not by using the remote control)
- The software update should begin automatically and the progress shown on the TV screen
- The initial download is very quick and then programming takes 2-3 minutes
- Pauses in the percentage time bar are quite normal
- When the update is complete End will appear on the front display and Success Downloading! will appear on the TV
- Unplug the USB Flash Device containing the HDR_FOX_T2_Upgrade.hdf file
- re-connect any other USB devices e.g. Wi-Fi adadper, Hard disk Drives etc. (ensure that the HDF file is not present)
- Press the big button on the front again to restart with the new firmware

Some USB Flash / Disk Drives are reported not to work, The reason for this is not fully understood, However the following Tips are known to help:
- Ensure no other USB devices are connected
- Do not use a USB extender cable
- Removing all other files / full-formatting can prevent file fragmentation
- Try both USB ports (HDR)
- Smaller capacity drives seem to work more successfully than large ones
- Last Resort, Try a different USB Flash Drive

About Device Firmware:

Applying a newer firmware version than the one already installed on your unit can bring various enhancements, include workarounds for diverse problems encountered by the device, and improve or add newly developed features.

On the other hand, downgrading the firmware version can recover the device’s functionality in the event of a software update either turning up faulty or causing the unit’s overall performance to drop. However, bear in mind that applying an older firmware isn’t recommended and might not always be possible.

When it comes to the update steps, due to the large variety of devices and numerous ways for installing a new firmware, it is recommended that you carefully read and understand the upgrade steps, and consider applying a different firmware only when you have familiarized yourself with the update method.

As the installation process is most of the times quite risky, this step should be taken by users that have the ability to successfully complete the update; regular users may initiate it at their own risk. Moreover, it’s best that this task be performed in a steady power environment such as the one ensured by a UPS unit.

Therefore, if you consider applying this release, hit the download button, take into account all the aforementioned aspects, and update the device’s firmware. Also make sure you constantly check with our website to ensure that you don’t miss a single new release. 

  It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.

Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. This will help if you installed an incorrect or mismatched driver. Problems can arise when your hardware device is too old or not supported any longer.
